It’s Camping Season!

Time to get the trailer ready!

As we haul all of our camping stuff up from the basement it’s getting more exciting! While looking after 2 homes in the summer, spending more money and of course drinking that extra beer/wine I’m so excited to spend more time with the people we love and be outdoors! 🙂

It is a lot of work but it’s totally worth it!

While my husband concentrates on getting things like:

  • Batteries
  • Inverter
  • Solar panels
  • De Winterizing
  • Cleaning the outside of the trailer
  • loading all the bins, chairs, tables, etc.
  • Oh and helping friends do the same thing 🙂 It’s really a big family affair.

I am busy loading:

  • Linens
  • Making beds
  • Cleaning every cupboard and drawer
  • Cooking supplies
  • Food (wait till it’s not freezing outside anymore)
  • Clothing

Here’s a quick checklist to go by when getting your trailer ready for the road.

I also print out lists every time just so I don’t forget anything. These are the most ultimate checklists from RV Goddess that I’ve found so far!

We start camping at local campgrounds. It’s a good idea because if you forgot something important you can just run home to grab it. While we do start camping early April it tends to be a bit chilly day and night. During the day we play outdoor games, go for walks and maybe have a fire. During the night we will have a fire, sometimes go for another walk, have some drinks and maybe play an indoor game or watch a movie and visit. This trip is basically just to get out of the house, get the wrinkles out in the trailer and get together with friends for the season kickoff.

We tend to do most of our cooking outside (prep and all) when the weather is nice but there are times when the weather is cold (like April) that we’ll prep inside but still cook outside.

Let me know how your first trip out went!

Happy Camping
